Default CATALYST 4.3


That’s right!!
The CATALYST SUITE 4.3 is now up for your total Graphic Multimedia needs.

-Halo and Tomb Raider framerates are up 3-7%.
-Shader-specific technology tests such as ShaderMark show gains in the region of 10-20% or more.
-3DMark03's Mother Nature scene runs 2-5% faster across the entire DX9 product line. Our 3DMark03 Pixel Shader 2.0 framerate improves 7-15%.
-Aquamark 3 performance has also improved slightly, at higher resolutions.

Resolved issues:
-Setting the video resolution to 1280x1024 in the game Medal of Honor: Spearhead, along with Anti-Aliasing set to 2x no longer results in the main menu of the game not displaying properly.
-Display corruption is no longer noticed when playing the game Aquanox under Windows XP with an ATI RADEON(tm) 9100 IGP series installed. This issue is was known to occur when specific video options have been customized.

*Setting the resolution in the game Enclave to 1024x768 or higher no longer results in display corruption.
-The Windows operating system no longer intermittently fails to respond when playing the game Jedi Knight 2 with the display set to 1024x768 32bpp and the game option set to High Quality.
-Windows problems are no longer noticed when playing the game Homeworld 2 in single player mode.

That's really cool. I didn't think there was more to be had on the performance front.
Can't wait to try them out!

Halo runs faster with the new driver! Rat race level is no longer choppy on my computer. Use halo.exe -use20 when you run Halo, it uses 2.0 shader (default is 1.0 i think).
